The House of Representatives has awarded its Workplace Rights and Responsibilities training contract to the firm of FranklinCovey. 

FranklinCovey, which specializes in management and workplace training, has been working to coordinate over 400 sessions in D.C. and sessions in more than 90 congressional district offices throughout the country, according to a Dear Colleague letter obtained by Roll Call.

House Resolution 630 was passed in Nov. 2017 and requires each member of Congress, staffer and employee of the House of Representatives to complete an education program focused on workplace rights and responsibilities annually.

“We are confident the House’s partnership with FranklinCovey, a globally recognized leader in corporate training, will successfully balance the enormous logistical requirements of in-person education for an estimated 16,500 individuals across the United States and provide an excellent education session that includes anti-harassment and anti-discrimination subject matter,” House Chief Administrative Officer Philip G. Kiko said in a statement.

The sessions will be 90 minutes long and focus on anti-harassment and anti-discrimination information and policies.
